2 $400 flight vouchers, where to go on budget w/ wife & bonefish?

Hi y'all. Due to some travel mishaps, American Airlines has awarded my wife and I with 2 $400 flight vouchers. We live in NC, so would probably be flying out of RDU, connecting in Miami to head to our destination.

My question - if you had $400 to spend on a flight and wanted to stay/eat/live on a budget for a week with your wife and also go chase bones a day or two, where would you go? Planning on using Chase Credit Card points for our lodging, want somewhere with a low cost of living so there are cheap local places to eat, and also less-expensive guides. I'd like to go somewhere where I can fish with a guide one day for less than $400, and go back another day for a couple of hours to wade-fish on my own. Or no guide and just wade-fish a couple days.

My wife is pretty cool, she doesn't need a spa. She'll probably drink rum-punches and read while I'm fishing.

My bonefishing experience is on Ambergris Caye (guided), Silk Cayes (wading solo), and Abacos (wading solo). I found the Abacos to be very expensive since they have to import so much stuff.

Thanks in advance!
